Abbey Road Studios ( and Chandler Limited ( will develop a range of classic pro audio equipment based on the designs and circuitry of the EMI-produced desks and other equipment used at Abbey Road Studios during the 1960s and '70s.

The first offerings are the Abbey Road Special-Edition TG1 compressor and TG2 preamp, which are now available.

The compressor is a re-creation of the classic EMI TG12413 limiter used in the custom EMI and Abbey Road recording and mastering consoles of the late '60s and features an all-discrete circuit with transformer balanced I/O. The TG2 preamp is re-created from the rare EMI TG12428 preamp and offers the same discrete transformer balanced amplifiers as the limiter.

Dave Holley

According to David Holley, managing director of EMI Studios Group, “Many producers and engineers acclaim the acoustic quality of the original EMI consoles, and through this new equipment, we are pleased to make the Abbey Road sound more widely available.”
